Marijuana May Stop The Spread Of HIV, Study Finds

Marijuana May Stop The Spread Of HIV, Study Finds

Commented Feb 12, 2014 at 13:26:10 in Healthy Living

“Sorry to hear about your brother in his partner. In order to receive medicinal value from marijuana for things like cancer, HIV, you do not smoke it. You must ingest it in the form of an oil. It can be easily made and a few drops a day is all that is needed. There is no "high" associated with the small dose of oil used for this purpose. Smoking it will also provide medicinal value but that would be for pain relief, nausea, depression, anxiety, etc..”

“It's been really tough, I make more working hard than any welfare and have stayed with the same company all these years for job security. Soon he will be an adult and I will be on to bigger and better things. My son has mild autism too but we have both worked hard. Now he is a junior in high school and A's & B's. Going to go to college. I never wanted to be a stereotype and even though it has been extremely tough I have managed to do it on my own. Without any help from the father too. I want my son to be self reliant and stand on his own two feet. I know other single moms who are doing it on their own too. I'm not the only one. I do agree with you though and wish there were more women out there who do it without help too.”

“That is correct! Full time office manager. Prior to that before turning 18 I received Child support from my parents because they kicked me out at 16. Have you ever received any tax credits? (first time home buyer?, AMT Credit?,Education Tax Credit?, etc?) I find it hard to believe you have never used a tax credit while doing your taxes.”

“I love this! I can't stand when people indoctrinate their kids (especially girls) with the fairy tale princess crap.. Last time I looked around, actual real princesses are a rarity and tbh there lives don't seem all that great. We need to teach our girls to be strong women!”

“I always have, even in medical school, where I was hounded day and night by professors and other students. It was harassment in the extreme.

I learned to stick up for those who cannot fend for themselves or the downtrodden courtesy of my parents, who believed in helping others all their lives.

I'm the kid in school who made friends with the outcasts. I didn't care to belong to the super cool cliques; I had confidence in my ability to overcome their rants and verbal abuse.

I was never a shrinking violet. And now that I'm 60, I'm even more the kind of woman who believes what comes around, goes around. The ugly-minded, the apathetic will get theirs someday.”

“Most assuredly. The place is full of upper middle-class housewives with nothing to do except look good, most of them being trophy wives. We would have had nothing to talk about, unless they wanted to discuss my experience in Iraq and two years operating on our sons and daughters.

I DID manage to catch up to the two black ladies and I apologized on behalf of the store and I don't even own a percentage of it. They were exceedingly polite and well-mannered and we ended up having lunch together.

Lululemon is a joke, plain and simple. It caters to airheads, who are duly impressed by themselves.”

“Understandable. BUT, it is still illegal federally, so he was taking a big chance that the state would honor his use for medical purposes. This also probably happened before the state legalized it for recreational purposes. People are still taking a big chance with the law in this ambiguous legal dilemma. And it is an example of lost lives because of it. People need to be aware that they are not really protected yet if they use it in Washington State.”
